Irina Kazakevich who won gold as part of the Sverdlovsk region team in the women’s relay at the Alfa-Bank Russian Summer Biathlon Championship, which is held in Tyumen, noted that she could not explain the bad shooting “on the stand”.
Natalia Shevchenko, Irina Kazakevich, Anastasia Shevchenko and Tamara Derbusheva covered the distance in 1 hour 10 minutes 29.2 seconds with three penalty loops.
The second place was taken by the first team of KhMAO-Yugra (Kristina Reztsova, Ekaterina Noskova, Alina Kudisova, Elizaveta Kaplina), the top three was completed by the team of the Tyumen region (Ksenia Shneider, Ulyana Nigmatullina, Elena Kruchinkina, Victoria Slivko).
— When I was spinning standing up, it seemed like I had been doing it for a long time. I don’t know what was going through my head, but it turned out there were three penalty loops. Using extra cartridges, I had tremors in my legs, I decided to work as hard as possible and continue to catch up with my opponents,” Kazakevich said on the show “Gromko” .
Natalia Shevchenko indicated that it is counting on a good performance during the winter departures.
— What did you write before the season? As a team, we write down the objectives for the season, what we want to achieve. Of course, it says here that I want to perform well at winter competitions,” Shevchenko added.
All Russian Championship races are broadcast live on the channel and broadcasts are also available on the matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru websites.
